We report a case of post traumatic impacted intranasal wooden foreign body in a 16 year old boy, which was undetected on Computed Tomography in the acute stage. Intranasal wooden foreign body may be missed on CT in the acute stage because of apparent air attenuation of the foreign body and lack of contrast with the surrounding intranasal air. Radiologists need to be aware of the CT imaging appearances of wood in various stages for early detection and management.
